You Make My Heart Sing Bouquet: Fusion Challenge!

You Make My Heart Sing Bouquet: Fusion Challenge!
 
This week's challenge inspired me
 to try for a watercolor look.
I love the mamelephant stamp line, and the set Smitten is a new little favorite.
I used it for the Play Date Café challenge, then I think, what else ??
Can I use it again, why YES, you can.
 
I used Marvy Le Plume Pens and copics for the effect
 
 Hope your Memorial Day weekend is SUPER!

Stamps: craftsmart jar,
Stampin Up! best Blossoms, Blossoms Abound,

Nicely done! I like how you used the smaller circle in this design to contain your sentiment. It keeps the focus on the lovely floral.
